Having grown up in Dubai, Muscat, and India, I have always been fond of learning from people about their cultures and from their life experiences. I decided to pursue medicine due to my love for people. I am also passionate about reducing and eventually eliminating the financial barrier to medicine. I am an avid writer, love to run and experiment with cooking in my free time.
I was a Peer Tutor at Boston University's Educational Resource Center for two years. I tutored students in college-level physics, chemistry, biology, and calculus either one-on-one or in groups of three.
I was a teaching assistant for a class titled "The Cultural Formation of the Clinician" which is offered at the Graduate School of Medical Sciences at Boston University School of Medicine.
I taught CPR to high-school students in low-income neighborhoods of Boston.
